Flat with balcony deck access – we have a range of lenders that will lend on this type of property.
If you bought a flat with balcony deck access in the last 10 years you may have experienced difficulty getting a mortgage or are perhaps on a high interest rate.
The Credit Crunch has meant that what funding has been available has often channelled in more desirable property to give greater protection to the Mortgage Lenders. This is well and good for them but left a large sector of the mortgage market underserved.
Even before the Crunch: Blemain Finance Group, Victoria Mortgages, Preferred Mortgages and London & Scottish denominated the lending on balcony deck access and deck access flats; and their interest rates were often considerably greater than high street alternatives.
Fast forward to 2018 and the liquidity of funding is in a far rosier state with a plethora of Mortgage Lenders showing much greater desire to lend on balcony access flats so now is a great time to think about switching your mortgage to a fixed rate giving the market is predicting interest rate rises. Liquidity too has had a history of going in up and down in cycles so why not cease the opportunity because if market conditions cease back up you may well be left with limited mortgage choice again.
